I don't think I exaggerate when I say the The Rosemont Neighborhood and Maury Elementary combine to make this part of Alexandria one of the best places to live in the National Capital Region. This school is very good and we highly recommend it to other families.

My daughters have thrived at Maury. The teachers and staff are stellar and there is a great sense of community among the families.

Our children have attended Maury for 6 years and we all (parents and students) love the school. Our children have excelled academically and socially. The principal and teachers are great educators who are caring and thoughtful in their interactions with all students. The Maury community is amazing and one that all children would be lucky to be part of.

Our family has nothing nothing but accolades for the Maury Elementary. Also, the class sizes have been small for our children (17 and 21 kids per class at present). Because all the students, and some of the teachers, live within walking distance of the school, the students have the opportunity to interact outside of an academic setting, too. We think this fosters a sense of community and is one secret to Maury's enduring appeal.

Alexandria City Public Schools are ranked as seventh best in the Commonwealth of Virginia and Virginia is ranked as the 11th best state for schools by Niche.com. Maury Elementary is a great school in a great school district.

Maury is indeed at "Great School" and the skilled teachers produce great results. The Rosemont neighborhood community is also a wonderful community for the students. The only downside is the high cost of housing in the jurisdiction which is partly driven by the excellent public schools - not just Maury Elem., but GW Middle and TC Williams High as well.



- a
I wish all families could have a school like Maury to educate their children. The educators at the school consistently exceed our high expectations in almost all aspects of education. As a bonus, the school will soon begin construction on a $1.4 million playground renovation.



- a
The field trips funded by the Maury PTA and managed by the teachers and staff provide wonderful educational opportunities. Our children have seen the following on Maury class field trips: Jamestowne and Yorktown; The White House; U.S. Capital; The Kennday Center; DC's Decatur House; George Washington's Mount Vernon; Alexandria's Gadsby's Tavern, Ledbetter Apothocary, City Hall and Masonic Temple; Alexandria's Winkler Nature Preserve; and Alexandria's trash incinerator/power plant; and Alexandria's water treatment falicility.

Our family loves Maury Elementary and would highly recommend it to others looking for a high quality education in a wonderful community.



- a
Our child tells us he loves this school. We as parents love it, too. The teachers and the administration are great at communicating with families. We have noticed over time that the educators consistently deliver the message to each child that he or she is expected to do his or her best at all times. Of course, the staff support the children in this. Class sizes are small and the music and art teachers are exceptionally talented educators. On-site afters school enrichment programs are run by the PTA and provide excellent additional opportunities for learning.
